Spesh Demo – is this a good deal ?
Never owned a DH bike, and realistically have no need of one, but this seems a good deal ? Any opinions, thoughts or experiences much appreciated. Sorry, some of the text may be in Chinese and illegible on your computers. Thanks again.Posted 8 years ago
It's a pretty good price, yes. It's a decent specced bike too, but be aware it's a few years old and that type of bike is built to be ragged silly!
Bear in mind you've got to factor in postage and that yo can get a really really nice Big Hit, brand new, for £1499 and get the lovely back up of a warranty…Posted 8 years ago
(Personally, I'd love a Big Hit 🙂 )
Aaargh, got the urge to add to my bikes big time. On the same website, also found this, so my question is which would you go for (the price works out very similar)
Once again, thanks for any opinions whatsoever.Posted 8 years ago
Demo 9 is a downhill bike that just happens to also be really rather good for freeride, or what freeride used to be. Tony (Jedi) and I run Demo 9's with 24 inch rear wheels, they can however be set up and run relatively light. Arguably one of the best pedalling big bikes ever made.Posted 8 years ago
The demo 9 came first, the demo 8 was a much cheaper bike to make for spesh…chakapingSubscriber

Might be worth dwelling on this a bit and thinking about whether you'll actually get the chance to ride it anywhere.
I built up a new-old Big Hit last year because it was super-cheap – but it was way too heavy for me and no use on anything flat or even gently sloping.
Have sold it and got a Lapierre Froggy instead, which has an inch less travel and pedals a lot better. Should be much more useful for the kind of riding I'm actually likely to be doing.
One of them new Big Hits might be a better option than the old BH or Demo.Posted 8 years ago
